Press release, September 17; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Monday 17 September 2007]

Leadtek Research has announced new members of the Quadro family - entry level FX 370 and FX 570, mid-range FX 1700 and the NVS 290 and Tesla C870.

The latest Nvidia Quadro architecture takes application performance to new levels by featuring the industry's first unified architecture, said Leadtek. Designed to dynamically allocate geometry, shading, pixel, and compute processing power, the latest Nvidia Quadro graphics boards deliver optimized graphics processing unit (GPU) performance. The GPU pipeline efficiency is further enhanced by fast 3D and large texture transfers, while Nvidia's crossbar memory architecture, enables occlusion culling, loss less depth Z-buffer, and color compression.

The latest Nvidia Quadro FX graphics solutions are the reference standard for Shader Model 4.0 and next-generation operating systems enabling breakthrough ultra-realistic, real-time visualization applications. Styling and production rendering are integral functions of the design workflow.
